With an expanded battlefield including a Japanese controlled hill, trench and cave fighting positions, and military vehicles like the LCVP Higgins boat, M3 Stuart Tank, and half-track the volunteer living history detachment will educate the visitors on the equipment and weapons used by both forces during WWII in the Pacific.

 

Tickets are non-refundable. This is an outdoor program that is cancelled only in cases of severe weather. In the case of program canellation, rain checks will be issued. Not recommended for small children due to loud noise. 

 

 

 

Enjoy an educational experience you won’t find anywhere else from the new amphitheater seating, followed by a battle reenactment set on an island somewhere in the Pacific. Hear the rattle of machine gun fire, the echoing blast of grenades, and feel the searing heat of the flamethrower as the joint US forces take the Japanese controlled hill.

 

 

Show times are 10:30 am and 2 pm on both Saturday and Sunday unless otherwise noted. As this is an outdoor show, some shows may be cancelled due to weather (check back often for updates to show weekends). Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, with children 6 and under free.
